My WILDFIT Journey

by Lisa Bradley

I woke up at 4 am on my 50th birthday. I tried to get out of bed and I could barely walk. Every muscle and joint in my body hurt. For five years I told my doctor that it felt like my body was attacking itself. Finally, he sent me to a neurologist who diagnosed me with Myofascial Pain Syndrome (similar in symptoms to fibromyalgia). I had to retire early because by the time I got from the parking lot to my desk I could barely move.

I was already taking medication for heartburn, allergies, and asthma daily. I had headaches every day, and the migraines were becoming more frequent. I used to get migraines only once every six months or so, now I was getting them almost weekly. I was also exhausted every day.

I watched my mother choke down 17 pills every morning and 17 pills every night for the last 15 years of her life. I decided that was not going to be my fate. Nothing she was taking was healing her body, it was only maintaining her poor health.

Then I found WILDFIT. I watched a masterclass in which the founder, Eric Edmeades, explained his journey and gave some information about WILDFIT. My thought was, “Well, what do I have to lose at this point? A few dollars? That’s not such a big deal if it helps me improve my health.” After all, what would I pay to get my health back if it was completely gone?

At the time I was 55 years old, weighed 165 pounds, and my body was failing. I wanted quality of life over quantity, so I decided to sign up for WILDFIT.

The WILDFIT program was easy and difficult. It was easy in that the enhancements each week were released on Friday so I was able to shop over the weekend. With each enhancement being unveiled weekly instead of all at once it reduced my opportunity to fail because it wasn’t overwhelming.

After the first two weeks of learning some of the psychology around food and why we eat what we eat, we started implementing enhancements that taught us to eat the Human Diet. Eric explained that every animal on the planet has a diet, including humans. However, we have gotten off our human diet because of the convenience that is now available to us.

I learned that we are eating more and starving ourselves nutritionally at the same time, and how we are doing that. I learned how the food manufacturing industry is hiding processed sugar in our food and then labeling it “healthy” or “organic” when it’s not. Why do they do that? Because sugar is addictive, and it makes you feel hungry. As a result, you buy more and it increases their profit. I learned about the six human hungers, of which only a few are genuine hungers. Empty stomach is not a genuine hunger, who knew?

It was difficult because I was not used to cycling through seasons or eating the human diet. And I absolutely hated leafy greens, good thing WILDFIT has a hack for that! I had to learn a new way to eat, a new way to snack, a new way to plan and prep for meals. But it was so worth it! I don’t have daily muscle pain now. I was able to release two of my medications (heartburn and allergies) and 45 pounds (I now weigh 123 pounds). Every time I cycle into a spring season my body heals more and more. I love WILDFIT and I love eating the human diet; I will never go back to eating the convenience foods I used to eat, especially now that I know how they really affect my body. My health is way more important to me than convenience.


What I learned about White Privilege

There is one good thing that came from 2020. And let me be completely honest here, when I first heard the term “White Privilege” I was offended. I think of privilege as someone whose family has money or power and my family had neither. So, I was very resistant when I was told I had white privilege. As I learned more about what they meant when they used that term, I realized that I, as a white person, have some advantages in this country. I wonder if we can change the term to “White Advantage”?

Here is what white advantage looks like:

I don’t have to worry when my son leaves the house that he will be beaten or killed by anyone because of the color of his skin. I specifically don’t have to worry about the police killing him because of the color of his skin.

I don’t have to worry that my son’s college application will be rejected because of the color of his skin.

I don’t have to worry that he won’t get a job because of the color of his skin.

I don’t have to worry that some angry mob is going to hang him from a tree because of the color of his skin.

I don’t have to worry that someone is going to use my grandchildren as “Alligator Bait” because of the color of their skin.

My children have never had a white person cross the street to avoid them because of the color of their skin.

I don’t have to worry that some angry, jealous mob is going to bomb and burn my neighborhood or home because I have more than them. Something for which I worked hard and built myself. (See articles on the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. The history channel has a great one.)

I don’t have to worry that when a white person dies their killer won’t be prosecuted. (see almost any case in America where a white person killed a black person.)

I don’t have to worry that if I run for, and win, a government position I will be murdered by white supremacists. (see the Wilmington insurrection of 1898. NPR has a great article.)

Let me be clear, I do not have privilege, but I do have an advantage as a white person. It breaks my heart that some parents in this country need to worry about the things listed above. It makes me sad that we are still dealing with racism and oppression in this country. Honestly, when I was young and would watch documentaries or movies depicting racism or unfairness to anyone based on the color of their skin it made me angry. But as an adult, living in my white bubble, I honestly thought we were done with that. I am ashamed to admit, I didn’t know this was still a thing here in the United States. But apparently, it is.

Sometimes, when we look at a thing from the perspective of another, their point of view becomes clear. Then there is room for an open and honest conversation.


Bad COVID-19 Advice

I’m praying that people will educate themselves enough to know what most of us learned prekindergarten, that disinfectants are made of toxic chemicals and you should never ingest them or let anyone inject you with them because you will die.

I’m horrified that our president would stand up in front of the world and say that this might be okay! See this article along with the video. He later said that he was being sarcastic but there was nothing sarcastic in his tone in the original video. There are people out there who believe in him so much they might actually try this so I’m praying that Spirit and/or humans will educate those people before that happens.

In addition to this, it’s unsettling that he is suggesting that the UV light idea is his idea. Firstly, regular UV lights are used to kill viruses on medical instruments and tools, but they cause skin cancer to humans and damage their eyes so I hope that people educate themselves on the difference and don’t just go out and buy something that will harm them.

Secondly, researchers at Columbia University’s Center for Radiological Research have been working on a technology to kill seasonal coronaviruses (that cause the common cold and flu, as well as drug resistant bacteria). See this article. However, it has not been conclusively proven to be effective against this strain of COVID, but they are testing this now to find out. This new UV light (far-UVC) has the potential to kill the virus before it gets into the human body and they would install the lights in public gathering places like airports, schools, and grocery stores. It won’t protect you at home or in outdoors gathering places. It is not feasible that every household could install these at a cost of $500 to $1,000 each.

This new UV light has been tested on animals and humans and will not harm human skin, eyes, or other tissues. It is currently awaiting FDA approval which could take several months.



I think B-School is the absolute best training for entrepreneurs that I have ever seen. Other schools are geared more toward businesses but B-School is geared toward individuals who are starting or growing their business. The personal and business transformation that happens during this program is profound and lasting.

This program opens students up to new ideas and thoughts about what they can achieve better than any other training I’ve taken. Also, there is so much information and so many resources to help you along the way, it’s incredible!

If you own a business or are thinking of starting one, go sign up for this training as soon as it’s available. You get lifetime access! Registration begins February 19, 2019.

They have scholarships and payment plans if you can’t afford to pay the full price all at once. And, just so you know, I am not affiliated with B-School other than being a student and don’t get anything if you sign up. I just believe in it so much!

From their site:


B‑School is an 8 week, interactive video-based training program that teaches smart, effective online marketing strategies to business owners who want more sales and more impact from their online presence.

Commercial Rant

You know what I hate? Going to someone’s blog or vlog to read or watch what they have so eloquently created, just to have some random ass commercial start playing in the background or pop-up out of nowhere. Or maybe the sound doesn’t auto play but I can see the commercial moving out of the corner of my eye. It distracts from the content.

I get it, they need to monetize their content so they can make money to do what they do and I don’t begrudge them that; after all they have to pay the bills, but I deserve to not be assaulted by commercials every time I want to watch a vlog or read a blog.

I was watching an interview the other day. The total interview was one hour and I had to endure being interrupted six times. I usually shut it down after the third commercial pops up. If I hadn’t already known the person being interviewed, and known that it would be worth it, I would have found another interview with that same person.

Even if I love, love, love you or your content, I do not want to be assaulted. On one You Tube channel, they decided to show a fifteen minute commercial before the program started. And even though I love the person or company who was advertising, I really just wanted to get to the content. If I want to watch commercials, I will turn on the T.V. and I don’t have to watch them there either if I choose not to. With being able to record and watch later, or pause live T.V., I don’t have to watch commercials anymore.

If you’re going to put a commercial on something please do it at the beginning or the end. I’d actually be willing to listen to a short (1 minute or less) commercial to get to your content, but being assaulted by them every five or ten minutes in a 30 minute video is ridiculous and I will immediately shut it off. Because, frankly, there are other people out there who may be as good as you that I just haven’t found yet. Your content is not so important to me that I’m willing to be assaulted in order to watch or read it.



I don’t do grief well. I tend to withdraw rather than reach out, so please don’t tell me, “I’m sorry for your loss.” I already know and it only makes me cry harder.

When someone I care about loses someone I don’t know what to say. I’m sorry doesn’t seem like enough. “Loses” as if they went somewhere, got lost and you can find them again. In the physical sense it feels like a loss. They are no longer in the physical world, you can’t hear their voice, you can’t hold them, you can’t see them and you miss that. You will always miss that.

My cousin transitioned to spirit this week. I wanted to go see him when I found out he had cancer. In order to make the 378 mile drive I needed to put tires on my car. I couldn’t pay for the tires and the trip, so the trip to California didn’t happen. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see him while he was still in the physical.

What gives me comfort when someone transitions is sitting in the silence and feeling their presence. They didn’t go anywhere, they just changed form. They hang around, watching the people they love, trying to give comfort and love. Most of us have difficulty feeling their presence, but they are there. I wasn’t taught this growing up. I was taught that people go to Heaven (mother’s family) or just cease to exist (father). I’ve been taught that when they’re gone you no longer have access to them; you can’t communicate with them, but I’ve come to believe that teaching is incorrect.

Over the years, sitting in the silence, listening to God (or the universe or whatever you want to call it), has shown me that there is more to life than what I’ve been taught. When you sit in silence and listen you can hear the voice of Spirit. You receive words or pictures or thoughts or feelings or guidance in other ways. When you sit in the silence you can hear their voice. You can feel them surround you with love as if they are physically sitting with you giving you a hug. Grief keeps us from hearing or feeling them. Once the grief begins to lessen it’s easier to feel their presence and the comfort it brings.

If we were taught this truth from the day we are born, we would never question it or feel separated from our loved ones. The truth is there is so much life in the unseen world that we are never taught. We feel it every day on so many levels; we get guidance and messages in a thousand different ways but don’t recognize it because we’re taught things like, “You can’t know that”, “You’re crazy”, “That’s not real” or my personal favorite, “That’s just your imagination”. We teach our children to ask for guidance and then teach them not to listen to it, how crazy is that?

Here’s what I want you to know: It is not your imagination, it is real, you’re not crazy, and you can know that.

We know this truth as children. When we’re kids we believe in magic, miracles, and we know all things are possible. Then, as we get older, we listen to our parents, teachers, friends, and society telling us it’s not real, instead of listening to the still, small voice within us as it screams that what they’re teaching us is wrong.

Why in the world do we want to make the people we love doubt what they inherently know to be true? Doing this creates low self-esteem, lack of confidence, doubt in their abilities, and distrust of their own guidance and judgement.

Teach your children this truth, it is not your imagination, it is real, you’re not crazy, and you can know that, so they can be confident in their natural gifts, guidance, intuition, and abilities. They need to know you believe in them.


Don’t Let Your Outside Voice Become Your Child’s Inside Voice

As Parents

We want our children to be happy and successful in life so we tell them our thoughts or opinions. Be careful what you say to your children. Don’t let your outside voice become their inside voice.

I remember being chubby as a child. When I was a teenager I weighed 97 pounds and still I felt fat. It didn’t help that my dad would say things like, “Come on in fatty, if you can fit through the door.” To him it was a joke because I was so thin, but to me it became my internal voice. Every time I looked in the mirror I saw a fat person. Can you imagine? Ninety seven pounds and I thought I was fat, wow!

Be careful what you say to your children, they don’t have all the filters you do and take things very personally, especially coming from you. Lift them up, encourage them, help them stay positive and open to possibilities.

As Children (including teenagers and young adults)

Don’t listen to your parents. I’m not saying don’t follow the rules. Your parents give you rules to help keep you safe or teach you a skill that will help you in life because they love you.

What I’m saying is, if your parent says something that puts you down or makes you feel bad, just remember that you are an eternal spiritual being made of pure love. You are not the names people call you, you are not the way others make you feel, you have a choice in each moment to feel bad or to feel good.

Find a way to feel good about yourself; it’s your life and your responsibility. Think about things that make you feel good. Do things that make you feel good. Be who you truly are. Don’t let anyone’s outside voice become your internal self talk.


Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

According to Dr. Bruce Lipton, gene activity can change on a daily basis. “If the perception in your mind is reflected in the chemistry of your body, and if your nervous system reads and interprets the environment and then controls the blood’s chemistry, then you can literally change the fate of your cells by altering your thoughts.”

If this is true, then it’s possible that we change our bodies by changing our thoughts. Stop focusing on weight and focus instead on health!


Spiritual Conversations

I think spiritual conversations are some of the most important we can have. They put us in a higher vibration which is conducive to manifesting, creating peace, better relationships, etc. I decided to hold a group for just such conversations and they are better than I ever imagined.

I had a great Spiritual Conversation tonight with my friend William Eugene Clubb. We talked about visualization, seeing Spirit, trusting Spirit, sending peaceful energy out to our neighborhoods and the world, and so much more. He even played a very powerful Native American chant for me and while it was playing I could see the energy in the room moving. Thank you Bill! He is going to use it with his Illuminations and I know it will be very effective.
